With the official Wimbledon app for iOS, you can now follow the tournament from anywhere (provided you have an internet connection) on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad!
“The Championships, Wimbledon” or simply “Wimbledon” is the world’s oldest tennis tournament which has been held near the All England Club in London for the past 134 years. It started in 1877 and is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments besides the Australian, US and French Open.
The tournament takes place every year starting in the last week of June and ending in the first two weeks of July.
This year, Wimbledon will run from 20th June to 3rd July and you can follow the tournament by getting the recently updated Wimbledon app for iOS.

The Wimbledon app isn’t a half-baked job either. Although I’m sure die-hard tennis fans will just watch the action live, there are plenty of other useful features which are especially useful if you’re on the move:
You’ve got live scoring updates to follow, Radio Wimbledon to listen to, a schedule to consult to see when your favorite players are playing as well as on demand video highlights for any matches you might have missed.
